Calhoun is just on one of his routine medical checkup trips to the planet Weald when he learns about the quarantine around planet Dara. Odd, because there is nothing in the medical database talking about that. He decides to investigate, and while heading to Dara, he discovers a stowaway on his ship: A Daran in disguise...
This is such a cool story, I enjoyed it very much. Mark Smith an excellent reader; he brings life to the book. Enjoy!
